    I'm having major network troubles with my MacBook of late. I'll connect through wireless or wired (direct to my cable modem), and I'll lose my connection after a certain amount of time, usually a few hours. The weird thing is that I can restore my connection if I restart my MacBook, which to me seems like a software issue of some kind.

    What frustrates me is that I'm not doing anything to trigger the networking loss--it just happens, and I can't explain. Can anyone help me, or is anyone else having similar problems?

    This is a common problem seen amongst many Macbooks and there is a big discussion going around in the Apple discussion board and over here. The engineers have acknowledged there is an issue with the Airport drivers. They are working on a fix. :)

    Powerbuddy, you're my new official best friend. I honestly felt like I was cursed, as I had network problems before with my Windows laptop (I'm a recent switcher). Thank you times 1000, and God bless.

    Now just to wait on Apple update. That should be quick--after all, it's not like they have other devices to worry about. ;)
